Acquisition and Custody Information

The Rodin Museum records were transferred to the Archives in two separate batches from the European Painting Department, which currently oversees the administration of the Rodin Museum. Subgroup A: Rodin Museum (two cubic feet and one oversize box) was transferred on July 24, 1998 and Subgroup B: Rodin Museum reinstallation (two document cases and one oversize box) was transferred in March of 1992.


Five volumes primarily of photographs, as well as correspondence and other writings, were transferred from the Philadelphia Museum of Art Library after these records were processed in 1999. In July 2006, the material was incorporated into Subgroup A. Most of this material pertains to the artist although two volumes pertain to the Rodin Museum, Philadelphia.

In Oct. 2006 the Archives received photocopies of receipts of purchases Mastbaum made from the Parisian dealer F.&J. Tempelaere.

Photographic material from the Museum's Prints, Drawings and Photographs Department were incorporated at a sub-subseries level in January 2007, and currently identified in the first series in the "Photographs" subseries as "To be processed."
